    Designing an indoor garden?

    Thursday, April 28th, 2011

    I am designing an indoor garden. It will be located in a glass sunroom/conservatory. Unfortunately, most of the books about indoor gardening are about growing plants in pots. I want to create an ACTUAL indoor garden — lavender, jasmine, ferns, irises — planted in soil beds.

    What I want to know is:
    1. Whether there are any books or websites on the subject.
    2. Whether the plants I’ve mentioned would grow in good indoor conditions, and any other plant suggestions (preferably plants with flowers!)

      Led lighting,indoor gardening question?

      Monday, July 12th, 2010

      my question is about, led lights as a light source for growing plants indoors. I have seen products called UFO led lights, they use way less energy are burning at a cooler tempature and have a full spectrum of red and blue light. Has anyone used these? And what did you think of the quality of these led lights? They do seem a bit expensive, if you have used em do you think do you think they are worth the price? And is there any brand or make that is better, the best ones you can recomend? any additional info I should consider, if I decide to purchase or use these led lights for my indoor garden.. Thank you, whom take the time to respond to my question.
